Canon Comic Review: Star Wars #33

Star Wars #33

– Spoiler Review –

While the Star Wars mainline series was saved, momentarily, by The Screaming Citadel crossover with the Doctor Aphra series, it’s been awhile since I’ve really enjoyed an issue and knowing the next arc would start with Luke and Leia getting some alone time on an island, my apprehension was simply not helped. Thankfully, Star Wars #33 is a return to form for the series, not only giving us fantastic insight into Leia, but also some enjoyable twin team moments and the most exciting set up yet for what’s to come next (Hint: the series first (and nearly only) new character and a certain charming smuggler)!

Star Wars #31 - The Screaming Citadel Part 2

– Spoiler Review –

The Screaming Citadel crossover continues in Part 2 – Star Wars #31! Despite a new creative team for this portion of the crossover, none of the charm from Part 1 is lost and things spiral, ever entertainingly so, even more out of control for Doctor Aphra and Luke.

Doctor Aphra and Star Wars Comics Star in Marvel’s The Screaming Citadel Crossover

The Screaming Citadel AnnouncementWhen I first saw the announcement, I thought it was a joke, as The Screaming Citadel sounds like something out of a campy horror B-movie. Thankfully it wasn’t though, as it sounds like Marvel’s next crossover (the first being Vader Down) looks to embrace the title’s tone and give us a gothic-horror story set in the Star Wars universe. Even better, it’s a crossover of the mainline Star Wars series with my absolute favorite comic character to date, Doctor Aphra! Check out some choice details below to find out what awaits you dear comic reader when the crossover begins this May. UPDATE: Marco Checchetto, who will have artist duties on the one-shot start to the crossover, shares some new character designs, so check that out below too!
